Where can I get edible paints to paint on fondant that are vibrant and opaque. I know I can thin down gel colors to make a watercolor paint of sorts but I was hoping to find something premixed in various colors that works like an acrylic. Thanks for your help icon_smile.gif

dont think that really exists. you can paint with airbrush colours, but i dont think that will be the look you want either. maybe better trying to 'paint' with ri.

When I need to use a paint rather than a thinned down colour, I use dust colours mixed with a clear alcohol like vodka. You get a good depth of colour that way

Yes, thats what i do ^^^ as you still obtain the vibrancey-
Or you can make a simple sugar syrup = 2 parts water i part icing sugar bring to the boil - allow to cool and mix you colour into it - then paint - i do that method also.
